All reviews princes street tight squeeze worth the climb spiral stairs afraid of heights coming down catch your breath different levels small museum christmas market well worth the effort great views of edinburgh views are amazing calton hill sunny day arthur's seat edinburgh castle
We finally went (my friend has tried to convince me for years) and it was definitely worth the effort. Staircases are a bit challenging but with a lot of “ahoy there, coming up’s”, we managed to go all the way to the topfloor with a...More
It was an exciting experience reaching the top. The view is awesome. You need a little physical condition and you should watch your head on the stairs. The ticket was 7 pounds for adults. No cofee allowed 😂
Right on Princes Street, this monument is impressive. At the end of Princes Gardens, and near to the main railway station of Waverley. You have to pay to go to the high up viewing platform but the 360 degress views of this capital city is...More
u can see this monument from most areas in the city and it can be entered but not sure how high you can go. An impressive building but i often wonder why it is left so black. Was the stain from steam trains in the...More

The hours fluctuate depending on the time of year. I have a picture of the...More
This is a beautiful monument but unfortunately I could not make the climb to the top. I'm sure the views were breathtaking as the city is so beautiful. If you're in shape and have good knees, go for it!!
Fantastic looking monument in the middle of Princess street. standing 200 ft tall, and completed in 1844. You can climb the 288 steps up, if you are feeling energetic. Was wet all the time we were there appart on way to station for train home,...More
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street is only half one, since buildings only line one side. But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views are from Princes Street as a result. From here you look onto expansive and decorative public gardens beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look
the other way, as they’re concerned with chain store shopping or catching the tram or a train at main train station Waverley. But it’s not all utility here; the Scottish National Gallery rewards purposeless wandering, and December’s huge winter market in the gardens begins a season of revelry which ends with Hogmanay, Britain’s largest New Year’s street party.
